Jaguars Designate QB Nick Foles To Return From Injured Reserve


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Nick Foles (broken collarbone) is returning to practice on Tuesday on a limited basis, which means he’s being designated as one of the Jaguars’ two players to return from injured reserve.

According to Rapoport, the plan for Foles is that he will be added to the team’s active roster for their Week 11 matchup with the Colts.

Foles, who signed with the Jaguars in free agency this offseason, suffered a broken left clavicle during his debut Sunday against the Chiefs. Jacksonville later placed him on injured reserve. 

Jaguars rookie QB Gardner Minshew has done a good job of filling in for Foles, but it will be interesting to see if they go with Foles once healthy. 

Foles, 30, is a former third-round pick of the Eagles back in 2012. Philadelphia traded Foles to the Rams back in 2015 in a deal for QB Sam Bradford and he later signed an extension with the team.

Foles lasted just over a year with the Rams before he was released and later signed to a two-year, $11 million contract with the Eagles. He was set to make a base salary of $4 million in 2018 when he agreed to a restructured contract this offseason and later bought his free agency by paying back $2 million to the Eagles. 

From there, Foles agreed to a four-year, $88 million contract with the Jaguars that included $50.125 million guaranteed.

In 2018, Foles appeared in four games and thrown for 1,192 yards while completing 69.8 percent of his passes to go along with five touchdowns and three interceptions.
